Watch until the end – there is always a clip after the credits.
Video Tip: Press play, let it play a few seconds then pause so the rest of the video can load. It’s worth the wait!!

Old Video/Original Episode:

Watch until the end – there is always a clip after the credits.

The video revealing the murderer and where you see a victim meet his fate was shot in two hours with one camera. We shot each scene about 6 times with a different camera angle. It was filmed New Year’s Eve, at 11am and was edited & complete by 5.30pm and was shown on TV to everyone who has been involved with the series and to everyone at our NYE BBQ. Meredith’s kids were horrified to see her killing me!
It was fun to do and we had to be careful I wasn’t actually strangled. But the IV tubing used was actually really tight – in one scene I turned red!
At 8.30pm, we got ready for the “dumped and discovered” scene, where I would be discovered in a bin. That was done by 9.30ish. You can see this at the end of the above video and the below video.

The new video was shot (the episode at the top of this post) because Meredith had become Tracey and had a haircut. We refilmed this murder and it was made more realistic and aggressive. It was reshot just after episode 2.

    Hey Kyle,

    Great work! Loving the Gnarles Barkley song choice while you are being strangled 😉


  3. Mum 1 January, 2008 at 9:21 PM #

    Love the scream! Excellent video.
    LOL @ you choaking and Meredith’s evil looks! Good job. Even though on your website you used a picture of me for Debbie! You could have asked her for one 😉

    haha- love the ending. Good idea!

    Interesting to make the “Oriental Street Strangler” a female and have male victims (or at least, a male victim – any chance of seeing the first four murder videos?). Good twist on the original story.

    Meredith is pretty hot, too. 😉 (Hope I don’t get in trouble for that, but if people want go on about Joey being hot … anyway, it’s true, she is!).

    Awesome Tui, ROFL!! I think you’re a fruitcake lol, but great job 😀 Good acting when you were being strangled.

    Nice touch with the ‘Crazy’ music. And very realistic scream from the ‘body discoverer’ lol.

  10. katipo 3 January, 2008 at 10:40 PM #

    Very tragic!!! Tui RIP it was nice knowing you mate!

  11. shortlandstreet 4 January, 2008 at 12:44 AM #

    – your hair… i just wanted to reach out and touch it!
    – your postlady… i hope she doesn’t steal your letters
    – your thomas the tank engine calender… where can i get one?

    It was a pretty major video Tui. I’m proud!

  12. Kyle 4 January, 2008 at 12:50 AM #

    Nice touch with the ‘Crazy’ music.

    I had to put that in when I was putting the video together. I used some sound effects to make it sound like it was playing loudly somewhere in the house, which is why I didn’t hear Meredith creeping up behind me. It wasn’t possible to play it while filming and have the song in sync.
    I too thought it was perfect for the scene 😀

    – your postlady… i hope she doesn’t steal your letters

    She was riding past our place when we were filming, so we asked if she would like to be part of the video, ride past and put mail in the letterbox. I was very thankful when she said she would!

    I used some sound effects to make it sound like it was playing loudly somewhere in the house

    It fully did!!!!

  14. esc 4 January, 2008 at 11:37 AM #

    Good work, as always, Tui.

  15. violetstar 4 January, 2008 at 11:37 AM #

    😦 Again, I can’t see it! *cries* But I’m sure it’s really awesome Tui! Well done! 🙂

  16. Kyle 4 January, 2008 at 11:58 AM #

    Instead of using the wmv link I gave you, try using the flash player, it might work then 🙂

  17. violetstar 4 January, 2008 at 11:58 AM #

    Thanks for that Tui! 😀 Lmao! Nice video! It’s just that, in one scene, did you say, “You’re mental” or “You’re a Mento”? O_o

  18. shortlandstreet 4 January, 2008 at 11:59 AM #

    “You’re a Mento”

    He said that. He was talking about Meredith’s refreshingly crisp and fruity breath.

  19. Kyle 4 January, 2008 at 12:02 PM #

    I said “You’re mental!”, but I shoudln’t have used that scene.

  20. violetstar 4 January, 2008 at 12:04 PM #

    Lmao!!! Was just wondering… 😛 😉

  21. shortlandstreet 4 January, 2008 at 12:11 PM #

    haha funny. sounds like you had a good NYE. Some people get smashed, some get wasted while Tui gets killed.

  22. TaniaG 4 January, 2008 at 1:02 PM #

    Great video – love the music “I think you’re crazy”, very appropriate!

  23. jb 4 January, 2008 at 1:41 PM #

    Meredith is Joey’s next victim 😦

  24. Dory 4 January, 2008 at 1:50 PM #

    Heart stopping performance 😛

    Very nice.

  25. Lemons 4 January, 2008 at 2:47 PM #

    ROTFL! It was awesome! XDD
    Nice hair Tui 😉

  26. Lucy wigmore is sexy 4 January, 2008 at 2:49 PM #

    hahaha Tui that was bl**dy awsome!! that last part was funny!! you should make more!!

  27. jb 4 January, 2008 at 2:49 PM #

    Tui was the bin clean? LOL 😛

  28. Kyle 4 January, 2008 at 2:51 PM #

    This was intended to be the last murder. But I might do another one, as Meredith is willing to “pick up the tubing” again and her sister Lisa, a makeup artist is willing to help create realistic-looking victims and be involved again.
    If I do another one, it won’t be until late February.

    Yes – the bin was clean! We used a green waste bin (hedge clippings, etc), removed all the stuff that was in it, washed it down, then filled it with rubbish bags filled with soft toys.

  29. Lucy wigmore is sexy 4 January, 2008 at 3:12 PM #

    Hahaha Tui you should make the last one the best of all because so far they are all the best!! =) hahaha Meredith looks so evil when she had the tubing!!

  30. Lemons 4 January, 2008 at 3:16 PM #

    LOL, just watched the bloopers, they rawk XD

  31. jb 4 January, 2008 at 3:46 PM #

    Choking with 😉 😮 – shock horror and it wasn’t Joey

  32. Kyle 4 January, 2008 at 3:53 PM #

    I knew Meredith would have been able to play the part really well, so that’s why I chose her to play the role of murderer.

    Hahaha I’m glad you like them! I will have to come up with something dramatic to beat my murder, haha.

  33. Lucy wigmore is sexy 4 January, 2008 at 3:58 PM #

    Hahaha yeah and maybe do something like before the clip starts you should do ‘Who is next on Meredith list?’ and maybe she can do an evil laugh??

  34. Kyle 4 January, 2008 at 4:01 PM #

    Hahahahahaha good idea :p

  35. Ez 4 January, 2008 at 4:32 PM #

    So Who is Meredith.. ? Im not quite up with the play 😛 *sorry*

  36. _Sarah_ 4 January, 2008 at 4:35 PM #

    Meredith the murderer 😛

    Hehe. Nice name, Tui.

  37. mxpress 4 January, 2008 at 4:55 PM #

    I enjoyed being the camera man and I am amazed at how you edited it all together and added the sound! I especially liked meredith crooning” It’ll all be over soon” as she happily strangled you. I must admitt to having imagined doing that to you many times over the last 15 years (strangling you that is) :-)))

  38. Lucy wigmore is sexy 4 January, 2008 at 5:15 PM #

    I can’t wait to see what happens, Will Meredith get caught?? or will she be like Jack the Ripper who was never caught!!

  39. Kyle 4 January, 2008 at 5:17 PM #

    Wait and see 😉

  40. Nisha_Shanti fan 5 January, 2008 at 12:13 PM #

    I have just seen it and it’s great. Nice work.

  41. Jordan 5 January, 2008 at 7:44 PM #

  42. Jana 8 January, 2008 at 12:11 PM #

    Oooh i just watched it!!

    Haha thats so awesome!! Kyle i love your dreads haha. Nice acting. It was really well made, nice editing and camera work!

  43. Nisha_Shanti fan 8 January, 2008 at 12:12 PM #

    I’ve just been watching it again and it really is so well done. It even has the song Crazy being played in
    the background.

  44. titiusfan 8 January, 2008 at 12:13 PM #

    Good job, young man! One question: how old are you, 15 or 16? I know she had a tight grip on you, but isn’t it a bit unrealistic that you could not fight off Meredith? She was excellent, by the way – very natural!

  45. Kyle 8 January, 2008 at 12:37 PM #

    Thanks Jana!

    Yes I’m 15, but I suppose I was too busy trying to pull the cord away from my neck like Tania did in the Callum/Justine video. Meredith was is fantastic. She leaves for Australia tomorrow, but she has agreed to participate in another upcoming project… 😀

  46. Ez 9 January, 2008 at 10:13 AM #

    Thts cool Tui!
    Nice music 😀 hehe sounds familiar!

  47. Shortyroxmisox 9 January, 2008 at 12:14 PM #

    I just watched it thats totally AWESOME Kyle 🙂

  48. Nisha_Shanti fan 9 January, 2008 at 1:15 PM #

    Oh no, the forum is haunted by Tui’s ghost. Lol.

  49. Lucy wigmore is sexy 9 January, 2008 at 3:15 PM #

    Cool keep going it’s really getting better and better!! 🙂

  50. titusfan 9 January, 2008 at 3:18 PM #

    You are really shaping up as the Grandmaster Flash of Street Talk! I thought of you the other day when I saw a movie called Die Hard 4, where poor old Bruce Willis had to YET AGAIN battle some bad guys who hacked into the national power grid and wreaked havoc, and only his young computer-savvy friend had any clue as to what was going on!
    I thought, “Pfft! I bet our Tui could take them on!” 😀

  51. Ryan 31 January, 2008 at 1:22 PM #

    Kyle is a great actor & Meredith’s expression looks genuine!
    Great work, hope I can be apart of it

  52. Paul 31 March, 2008 at 7:57 PM #

    Well done. This is the commencement to a great future.

  53. Sheree 21 May, 2008 at 10:20 AM #
